The new privacy legislation came into force on May 25, 2018. This concerns the Privacy Directive (95/46/EC) and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (2002/58/EC), the national laws implementing these directives and/or, where applicable, regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR” in short). This legislation replaced the law on the protection of personal data. The GDPR expects each organization that processes personal data to play a more proactive role.
